THERAPY MODALITIES AT AMEND TREATMENT
At Amend Treatment each person’s treatment is designed and implemented by credentialed professionals who are dedicated to and specialize in the provision of residential level mental and behavioral health services. Our approach is to identify and treat the often unseen and intangible, underlying causes of mental and behavioral health difficulties rather than focusing on the behaviors themselves. We blend evidence-based and alternative therapy modalities with each person’s individual strengths, needs, and interests to address concerns and hurdles in the areas of Emotional Health, Physical Health, Family Health, Social Health, Spiritual Health, and Professional and Educational Wellness.
While challenges and change are a normal part of life and adulthood, the COVID-19 pandemic and global issues of the 21st century have exacerbated the impacts of change, oftentimes triggering and complicating mental and emotional health issues ranging from bipolar disorder and depression to sleep disorders, self-harm, and panic attacks. Managing everyday life while living with mental and emotional health struggles is often compounded by increases in social isolation, binging, hopelessness, suicidal thoughts, substance misuse, and high risk or self-harming behaviors. Though each person’s experience is unique to their circumstance, the stressors of contemporary times are negatively impacting people on a scale not previously seen. The World Health Organization estimates that at least one in four families has at least one member with a mental health issue and that up to 75% of persons experiencing depression will not receive treatment.
"From relaxation techniques like massage, meditation, and sound therapy to exploration of hiking trails or music and drama therapy, each day of residential care at Amend Treatment provides both familiar and new avenues to sustainable recovery."
